WHAT DO WE TEACH?
As children come to learn more and more about how music is put together, they will begin to have new ears to hear any music. They add critical thinking skills to their musical experiences and will enjoy many kinds of music. They also come to understand and love music as they have hands on experiences creating their own music. They can have that experience through private lessons or by just doing some of the fun lessons that I will share.
The lessons will center on the Elements of Music: Beat, Rhythm, Style, Melody, Expression, Form, Timbre, Harmony, and Texture. You can watch as children become confidant at discussing these elements and hearing them in the music they listen to each day. They will enjoy using these elements to create their own music.

Peter and the Wolf - Preparing for Lesson 3 - Pictures of the Characters
Click on pictures to get the large size. Then right click and "save as". I print these out in 2 sizes. 8 1/2 x 11 for viewing with the group. The first lesson will use these large pictures. Then I also print smaller pictures - 3x5 or thereabouts. Those are used later so the kids can self test to see if they recognize the music.
